Apple's iTunes has sold its 10 billionth tune.
Apple said Thursday that its online music store crossed the threshold Wednesday when 71-year-old Louie Sulcer of the state of Georgia bought "Guess Things Happen That Way" by Johnny Cash.
iTunes had promoted the 10 billion mark and celebrated the milestone by giving Sulcer a $10,000 iTunes gift card.
Introduced in 2003, iTunes became the top overall music retailer in the U.S. in 2008. - AP
